Using Instagram to make farming more profitable

It only took one photo on a farm that was posted on Instagram, for the sunflowers they grow to become a social media hit. The owners have since had tourists from Japan, China and Brazil make the trip out to the property, and particularly from Singapore. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-05-04/insta-farming-has-businesses-booming-at-sunflower-farm/11049998

Maximising agriculture productivity

Bee Innovative has developed BeeDar, a radar like sensor for bees which is able to identify, track and report bee pollination activity across the orchard and field in near real time. Bee Innovative then provides this critical information to farmers to help increase yield and value. Bee Innovative is also developing a real time biosecurity platform to protect Australian pollinated agriculture worth $6 Billion annually from Varroa destructor which has decimated honeybee populations around the world. Bee Innovative’s frontline biosecurity platform includes BeeID, a facial recognition technology for bees. Bee Innovative is passionate about increasing global food production and defending Australia from Varroa destructor. Bee Innovative has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Accelerate5-Teams/Bee-Innovative

Improving sustainability within the egg industry

Adaptive Eggs identifies “male eggs” when they are laid avoiding the costly and undesirable culling practices in the egg laying industry. The incentive to adopt Adaptive Eggs breakthrough technology comes from the simultaneous elimination of economic losses associated with the incubation, hatch and cull of day old male layer birds and the potential conversion of this waste stream into novel value-added bio-products. Adaptive Eggs has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Accelerate5-Teams/Adaptive-Eggs

Small wind turbines that have a great impact

Traditionally, small wind turbines have had a significantly lower efficiency than their large-scale counterparts, increasing their levelized cost of energy. Diffuse Energy’s product is a small wind turbine that, through being enclosed within a diffuser, can produce nearly twice the power output of existing wind turbines of the same size. Their additional diffuser also makes their turbine safer and quieter than existing turbines, both of which are key considerations for potential customers. Diffuse Energy has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/ON-Accelerate4-Teams/Diffuse-Energy

An environmentally friendly graphene production process

Graph Air is a cost efficient process of producing graphene. It can filter out extremely toxic chemical compounds while allowing pure, pH neutral water through. It has narrow channels through which smaller water molecules can pass, but larger dissolved molecules and solvated ions are blocked. Graph Air has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/Accelerate1/Graph-Air

Growing global fruit and vegetables worry free

Globally US$30b worth of fruit and vegetable production is lost due to fruit fly, and US$18b in global trade is threatened by the pest. RapidAIM provides a service of real-time alerts for the presence and location of fruit fly using wireless trapping technology. This immediate data-driven decision service allows biosecurity agencies, growers and agronomists to respond rapidly to fruit fly detection to control the pest. RapidAim has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/Accelerate2/RapidAIM

A real time solution for detecting gold

The gold content of mineral samples cannot be detected in the field, costing explorers time, money and productivity. DetectORE technology delivers a simple, cost-effective real time solution for detecting gold in remote locations, transforming the current workflow. Geologists will now be able to sample, analyse and generate ‘real time’ results, giving them the ability to modify work plans ‘on the fly’ and in the process efficiently manage people, equipment, time and costs. DetectORE has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO.http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/Accelerate3/DetectORE

Leaf Oil from any plant used as a renewable resource

Consumers are increasingly demanding our fuels and industrial materials are produced from more sustainable and renewable resources. Plant oils are the most technically suitable, low-cost alternative, but current production systems struggle to keep pace with the projected 50% increase in demand needed just for food use. Folear enables the production of oil in leaves of potentially any plant, rather than just the seeds and fruits of our currently limited array of oil crops. This renewable oil production is needed to meet both this food security challenge and the renewable fuel opportunity. Folear (previously called LeafOil) has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/Accelerate3/LeafOil
